I have recently bought this drive [WD1000DHTZ] and I was wondering about something that makes me slightly uneasy.
As I installed the drive, on its first run it was constantly very loud until I shut the PC down. Once I rebooted it went quiet and stayed quiet. A few startups later and it’s still quiet. There are also no problems at all, cloned my disk, everything is a-ok and fast.
Everything is fine right? This is just the disk doing its first time spin-up right?
